    RIP Tone. You brought me so much inspiration over the years here, at a loss for words currently.

    My heart goes out to all of you that new Tone. I read a lot of his posts in here. He seemed like the kind of guy I would call "friend" and ski with IRL. RIP and thoughts to loved ones and all those who did have the pleasure to know him. Sad, sad day.

    I send my sympathy to all who new Tone. One of you mags mentioned to me at BBI18 Boze (Norseman?) that maybe he and I would become friends as we seemed akin; now sad to never know.

    I have lost a handful of friends this way and many times have sung the following with friends and family. I offer it here as a testament to Him, the MT. Crew and all of the rest of us Ski Bums...

    The year may have more than one season,
    but I can remember but one,
    the time when the rivers are a freezin',
    and the mountains, with whiteness are spun.
    the snowflakes are falling so fast,
    and the winter has come now at last.

    Two boards upon cold powder snow, - Yo Ho!
    what else does a man need to know?
    Two boards upon cold powder snow - Yo Ho!
    That's all that a man needs to know...

    The hiss of your skis is a passion,
    you cannot imagine a spill.
    When Bang! there's a godawful gash in the smooth shining track on the hill.
    What's happened, you can't understand;
    there's two splintered skis in your hand...

    Two boards - and some snow down your neck - Oh Heck!
    Your skis are a hell of a wreck.
    Two boards - and some snow down your neck - Oh Heck!
    Your skis are a hell of a wreck...

    I care not for government taxes,
    Take everything else that I own.
    But leave me my boards and my waxes,
    in the mountains, just put me alone.

    The snowflakes are falling so fast,
    And winter has come now, at last...

    Two boards upon cold powder snow - YO HO!
    What else does a man need to know?
    Two boards upon cold powder snow - YO HO!
    That's all that a man needs to know.

    Rest in Peace Skier

    Tony lived whole hearted and sincerely. He was a passionate and dedicated ski bum and backcountry partner. I feel fortunate to have been able to spend so many days out there with him. He has afforded me a shitload of amazing memories.

    I have 6 or 7 inches in my driveway at 7,500 feet. Get out and lay down some tracks for Tony.



    Whiteroom Guardian: saw you in the Sunday morning lineup, called out your IRL name a few times but you were several lanes over. I was in the single's line and ended up 2 chairs behind you up Swifty.

    Thought I saw you! I was in full crackhead mode trying to get up there in case they opened Little again. Looks like tomorrow might be the day. This snow should heal the entrances and tomorrow it's gonna go bird. Fuck fuck fuck. If I can get down there without getting fired....

    I like your enthusiasm man. Get it while you're young. At my age, I look at that thing and go, naaah.

    Such a tough call, though, if it puts your job in jeopardy...never know if it will open. Good luck.

    Just back from down there.

    Odd day. It was cold, 15 degrees or there abouts and the new snow was pretty light. You could feel the hard layers underneath in a lot of spots.

    Big line up for the 3x2x and I was in about the 4-5th tram. Went to sign out and the guy running the Penalty Box said, just sign up and go where you like. I don't think he meant the Little but you probably could have and not gone straight to hell. Talking to patrollers they said the entry into the Little is pretty well destroyed.

    Skied the N. Summit to Snowfield/direct and goated through the rocks to the very top of direct. It was ok but there was very little new snow, I think it sluffed or blew away. the last 3-400 feet was pretty good.

    Tram line was huge, it was windy as fuck up on Headwaters ridge and the Headwaters chair is done, probably for the season (Mechanical issues).

    It was worth the drive down, but barely. Could be the last true powder day for the season, or not.

    My buddy's kid used to bring fart putty on the tram all the time. I have to admit it was kinda funny.

    Thanks for the update bunion. Just too much to do at work tomorrow anyway. Would really be screwing the other guys if I bailed.

    Your map is wrong. None of the Headwaters are USFS, all of that is owned by the resort (Crossharbor Capital actually). Bunion can correct me, but I believe is was USFS back in the 70's, then Plum Creek in the 80's after the land swap that created the Lee Metcalf Wilderness, then Moonlight Basin in the 90's after Plum Creek logged it.

    Plus there is no such thing as Bozeman County. Where did you get that map ?
